bits and pieces

August 9, 2010 § Leave a comment

another installment of the random kind. they’re bits and pieces of numerous stories.

everything in chronological order.

arriving at the train station, waiting to board.

in the car with my sister to go and help berni get his car started

we couldn’t get it to run, so we decided to tow him home

the tow-cable was scary short and my sister was going 70kph. eventually (1km from home) the cable broke. we tied a knot and it got even more scary-short. later we learned that the car was fine; the chip in the key was borked.

upon arriving back in vienna, a massive storm showed up.

two days later water from the storm was still standing in the prater.

and another watery prater view.

i decided to walk around without any particular destination and ended up in the arsenal.

kreso and i play lots of pool lately; we even bought cue-sticks. also this is a very nice pool-café at st.marx run by a very nice couple.

my pseudo-quiche experiment without eggs, but very delicious :)

cyclist at 3:30am and two drunk kids in a shopping cart.

she was fun; came in smiling, sat down and greeted me nicely.

i love these glowing orb, misty atmosphere/dirty lens light orbs.

this was on my way home after a night out and cooking for friends. it was great to cook at someone else’s place, for: no dishes to wash!

at my parents place i got distracted by sun-play while watering the plants.

sun through slit and smoke.

water, sun and trees.

water and sun at high shutter speeds. looks almost like space.

motion with water and sun.

was at the skin doctor with my sister to get some moles checked: all fine. while walking around this dog stood there waiting for his owner.

behind my parents garden. this is a neighbors cat; she was just sitting there, turning her head ever so slightly.

this i love about being away from the city. stars, lots of stars.

everyone was rushing to catch the train, including me.

the train had odd, artifacting  polarizing filters on the windows.

and it’s a self-portait.

this fly, in the most thoughtful manner, died in a wonderful pose.

it’s storm season. the storms are so powerful and full of lightning that it is virtually impossible to take a photo and not catch some lightning.

also: caught one with my ipod nano. this one was about 500~600m away and killed the street lamps.

this is a rooftop garden of the akh. ‘slightly’ overprocessed.

lights and more lights. looks so much more impressive with a wider lens (or if seen in person)

kinda like the how the light, though harsh, plays softly with clouds and surroundings.

pinhole fun: it always produces rainbows <3 …

… and wonderful starbursts. but it also shows that i should really clean the sensor. (the top one has most spots cloned out)

it’s just standing there. and around it construction sites.

everyone is totally confused due to the bad signage and crosswalk zoo at the hauptbahnhof construction site. man with beer knows the way :)

orange, red, blue!

pretty colors

they say the train will reach it’s destination at 19:30, but then it’s 19:32 and you’re still 15 minutes away from it.

it amazes me how this particular train never manages to be on time.

the image above is a long exp. through the train window.

Where Am I?
